It seems to be a crapshoot: three attempts to replace my wife's at home (2009 MacBook Pro.) First one failed after two weeks (cable loose at the magsafe end) second one buzzed and heated up considerably right out of the package. Third on appears to be "Apple brand" (many advertise that but this one had the Apple tag and part #) and has been fine. I think it was $10 more than the others, which put it at ~$40. Still a bargain compared to Apple's price! Must have fallen off a truck in China somewhere... I'll find out where she got it.

Anyone have suggestions as to non-Apple AC adapter replacements?  Adapters to avoid or consider?  

Not really looking for brand, as there are lots out there, but more if anyone has had poor experiences with purchasing non-Apple replacements.

(MacBooks and MacBook Pros, older and newer)
